Jamal-Harrison Bryant Pimping for TBN with Steve Munsey – Night 5 of the TBN Pimp-a-thon! (Video)

by @ 3:08 pm. Filed under Nuts on Parade, Video

Each night on TBN there continues to be efforts to twist doctrine, to acquire money from many of the most vulnerable and naive Christians. Efforts to have them give money out of their lack! Night 5 (Thursday night) of the TBN Revival Praise-a-thon (April 8-13), which is really nothing but a Pimp-a-thon, was more of the same. People peddling the Word of God. And this night it was just so atrocious! Jamal-Harrison Bryant preyed on desperate people, calling them out specifically to send in money OUT OF THEIR LACK. He acknowledged Steve Munsey and played on Munsey’s game of 7, see Munsey run the game of 7 here. Then Bryant closed with the sinner’s prayer.

See Jamal-Harrison Bryant fleece the flock and then have them accept Jesus in the video below:



Jamal-Harrison Bryant says if you’re desperate and broke,
send what you have to TBN. Oh yea and accept Jesus.
A mockery of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Given his prosperity gospel method of preaching and his gaudy methods, as can be seen at his own web site at empowermenttemple.org. (Yes he has it designed like a fancy car, a BMW!) This puts Jamal-Harrison Bryant squarely in the position of having a church of the Laodiceans. Meaning those who continue to follow him after accepting Jesus would end up having to repent of the sins Bryant puts on them, as scripture says:

Revelation 3:14-22 (New King James Version)

14) ?And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,
?These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:

15) ?I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.

16) So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

17) Because you say, ?I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing??and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked?

18) I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

19) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

20) Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

21) To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

22) ?He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.???

The gold, riches, garments and eye salve are not of this earth and the true riches that Christians should seek. They can’t be purchased by giving money to TBN. Let me again show who Jesus says we should give to.

Matthew 25:31-46 (New King James Version)

31) ?When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.

32) All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

33) And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.

34) Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ?Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35) for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;

36) I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.?

37) ?Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ?Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?

38) When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?

39) Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You??

40) And the King will answer and say to them, ?Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.?

41) ?Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ?Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:

42) for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;

43) I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.?

44) ?Then they also will answer Him, saying, ?Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You??

45) Then He will answer them, saying, ?Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.?

46) And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.?

You accept Jesus into your heart, which I have no debate with Bryant over, but you give to those in need, the poor and share the Gospel with them. YOU DON’T TELL THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR AND THEN TAKE MONEY FROM THEM, YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE THE ONE GIVING TO THEM. Bryant has totally reversed the thing and it is WRONG. He is an example of those who are causing widows homes to be devoured and watching them give their last two mites. Groups like MinistryWatch.org have cited TBN for their terrible management of finances. But in the most recent TBN newsletter, they claimed that giving to them could be one of “7” keys to your healing. Do you see the game they are playing here? Leading people who need someone to GIVE TO THEM that they should give to TBN and instead of the rich at TBN helping more poor people themselves, they do the old Joel Osteen, just leave them to God routine. While they are rich, they tell the poor that they will be helped by God via some other means. This is why the poor would do well to keep their money and those who have and wish to give would do well giving to the poor and people other than Bryant and the pimps at TBN.

Notice who Jesus said giving to is like giving to God, versus who Bryant claims you should give to.

Bryant’s methods of extracting money are corrupt. He is devouring the poor and leaving them with the desire to give for the sake of earthly gain. He is using the Word of God for dishonest gain. His mouth should be shut.

Titus 1:5-11 (New King James Version)

5) For this reason I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city as I commanded you?

6) if a man is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of dissipation or insubordination.

7) For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money,

8) but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled,

9) holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.

10) For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision,

11) whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole households, teaching things which they ought not, for the sake of dishonest gain.

False teachers leading people with a focus on earthly satisfaction can do some serious damage.

2 Peter 2:18-22 (New King James Version)

18) For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error.

19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.

20) For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.

21) For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.

22) But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: ?A dog returns to his own vomit,? and, ?a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.?

Now when it comes to properly giving to those in need, instead of fooling the poor into giving their last bits of money, the charity should be done in secret.

Matthew 6:1-4 (New King James Version)

1) ?Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.

2) Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.

3) But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

4) that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.

Having said all that I have about this Pimp-a-thon and its players, let me make it clear, that I’m not in favor of somehow having government do something about these pimps. The pimps must be exposed and refuted with the Word of God.

  1. Jamal - Harrison Bryant And Steve Munsey Moneychanging Together For TBN? « Heal The Land With Spiritual Warfare Says:

    […] Posted by healtheland on April 14th, 2007 It is true, it is true. I actually watched Jamal – Harrison Bryant on his grand TBN debut when he triumphantly declared that it was a historic moment: the first time an African Methodist Episcopal Church was featured on TBN, which to me represented a historic opportunity for TBN to expand its reach into black audiences¬†and mainstream denominations of all races who currently feel put – off by the evangelical movement because of its conservative politics, which at the time I felt was A GOOD THING (I, er, feel othewise now). Now prior to this I had known about him because he was being given a huge push on The Word Network; his own show plus a bunch of specials. Yet though I loyally watched The Word Network at the time (TD Jakes, Fred Price, Paula White, Juanita Bynum, etc. big supporters and defenders¬†of them all I was until TBN ruined it all for me by introducing me to the term “Oneness Pentecostal” in an Azusa Street commemorational book they sent me; not that all of these people are anti – Trinitarian heretics, but that was the beginning of my eyes being opened) I just could not watch his show. Something about him; I cannot put my finger on it. Further, there was the fact that he named his church “Empowerment Temple.” Now as one who spent years in the grips of fever swamps of “black radical racism hate and kill all whites Jews Christians Asians” (yep, I went straight from “holiness or hell” to the fake hip/hop black power movement) and was new in Christ, I just couldn’t deal with mixing that terminology with Christ. Now I know that Jamal – Harrison Bryant SAYS that he MEANS spiritual empowerment, and he also means financial empowerment through the prosperity doctrine that he preaches (which at the time I also was an adherent to) and THAT THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HELPING YOUR OWN KIND WHEN YOUR OWN KIND IS DISPROPORTIONATELY POOR AND PLAGUED WITH ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS, but on the other hand, WHY ALL THE TIES WITH POWERFUL INFLUENTIAL CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS, PASTOR BRYANT? It just seemed to be some weird mix of prosperity doctrine and liberation theology, Creflo Dollar crossed with Al Sharpton, and all under the auspices of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. So, I just couldn’t deal with it. […]
